Since my very first introduction to Taiji as a young child, my interest and experience in martial arts has gradually grown.  Ten years ago I stumbled on a NATSTA Xingyiquan class.  Two years later, I began training intensively.  After another two years, I began to teach and continued to grow as a student.  In 2001, I commenced studies in Chinese medicine both formally and through NATSTA, as well as joining the R&D groups in Tucson.  Currently I practice Chinese medicine and teach Shen Long Xingyiquan, Liang Zhenpu Baguazhang, and Qigong.
